At KBIA News, I gained valuable experience filling many different roles in the newsroom. From a general assignment reporter to talk show producer and shift editor I've gained technical, reporting, producing and management skills.
For the past year I've worked with a team of producers from KBIA and programmers from the True/False Film Festival to develop a podcast. The show features in-depth conversations with directors and producers about the craft of non-fiction filmmaking. Besides producing content for the podcast, I was able to work in all aspects of the show from the conception to the launch in March.
As a digital intern at KCUR, I worked with reporters to add digital and social components to their stories and created digital-first content. I, also, gained experience in developing, organizing and executing a weekly video series.
In July 2016 I attended the Transom Story Telling Workshop taught by radio journalist Rob Rosenthal. In a week I pitched, reported and produced an audio profile of a local activist for the Missouri Audio Project.
Working on the Community Outreach Team at the Columbia Missourian, our goal was to incorporate audience engagement in all aspects of the newsroom. I created analytics reports, managed social accounts and gathered community voices to add depth to the our coverage and reporting.
